Could I Have Pure O OCD

Hi, my name is Jada and I'm 19 years old and currently attending college. Let me start from the beginning. So my intrusive thoughts started when I was 10 years old. One day at about 4 am in the morning the unwanted thought of harming myself popped into my head out of nowhere, that was the start of my intrusive thoughts. These thoughts lasted for a few days then thoughts of harming friends & family started popping up in my head. For a while it would go back and forth between thoughts of self-harm and harming others. This went on for about 4 months then the thoughts just disappeared. I went many years without having them but as I entered my senior year in high school they came back but not frequently. Now that I'm in college I have these thoughts almost constantly and my anxiety has increased drastically, even to the point where I have panic attacks sometime. I went to student counseling and they basically told me I was suffering from anxiety and depression due to the stresses of college, which effects me as well.Still to this day I have not told anyone about these thoughts.I now believe I have the form of OCD known as Pure O,simply because my experiences are very similar to many I see on this forum. Another reason is that my father has OCD, and I could have inherited this from him. What do you guys think?

Hi Jada! Sorry to hear that you are struggling with these intrusive thoughts. I am not a mental health professional but it certainly sounds like it could be OCD especially with your family history. Do you have a primary care doctor that you could visit and/or get a referral for mental health resources? It sounds like your experience with school counseling was not very successful, but I encourage you to try again. There are treatments and medications to assist with this disorder. I will pray that you find the assistance you need.
